Its the summer of weddings in Bristol and ArthurCox people were very excited to be asked to celebrate the wedding of director Lucy Izzard and composer Laura Coates. We danced ourselves silly.

The Anne Boleyn Film is online

Hurray – the Anne Boleyn film we made with Aardman for Historic Royal Palaces is out online – its a bit bit of a reversion as the original was for a 360 screen but we wanted you to see it. Directed by Sarah Cox and Designed by Emma Lazenby it was animated by Lucy Izzard and Mara Fradelli and edited by Dom Pitt – but the real creative genius is from the kids from the Shapla School who provided all the drawings and voices. Produced by the fabulous Helen Argo and Louise Johnson at Aardman.
